Providing RN oversight on every case from day one
Kelly Barnes, RN
How long have you been a Nurse?
I worked as a home health aide in college while pursuing my degree in English literature. I enjoyed it and was good at it. I then made the decision to change fields. I got my LPN in 1994 and my RN in 2003.
What experience do you bring to BrightStar Care®?
My med/surg hospital background gives me a great working knowledge of surgical procedures, post op care and obtaining/following doctors orders. My experience being the nurse in a private seniors community dialed in my problem solving abilities and communication.
What aspect of your job are you most passionate about?
Safely aging in the home. That includes factoring in family finances. How can we make this work and provide the best possible care for the client with the resources available.
I provide A Higher Standard of Care for our BrightStar Care® clients by...
…putting myself in their shoes. In giving the care, time and attention I would want for myself and my family.
